Sony NSZ-GS7 with Google TV review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Google TV had a second coming-out party at CES 2012, where a number of manufacturers introduced new features for the television-based operating system, new devices running it, and other big plans. Eric Schmidt, in a fit of what turned out to be insanity, declared shortly before CES that Google TV would be on a " majority " of new TVs by this summer. Well, that didn't happen.
  • Pros: Faster, more responsive interface, Hardware is simple and ports are well placed, Awesome universal search functionality
  • Cons: Google TV needs more content, App selection is lacking, Device gets really hot

Sony's NSZ-GS7 boasts an excellent remote, but Google TV still disappoints

CNET
13 October 2012
  • Summary: The Sony NSZ-GS7 has sleek hardware and an innovative remote, but it's hampered by the still too-limited and frustrating Google TV software.
  • Cons: The Google TV software continues to disappoint. There aren't dedicated apps for major streaming services like Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and MLB.TV, nor is Google's own movie rental service supported. Major content providers like ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Comedy Central, and MTV still block Google TV's software from streaming browser-based video. And the software is still buggy and difficult to use.

Sony’s Google box does Web browsing and apps on your TV

Good Gear Guide.au
7 October 2012
  • Summary: Sony's debut Google TV device in Australia is effective at bringing Web browsing to the big screen -- the Chrome browser works very well. The Google Play app store claims thousands of apps, but few are appealing. Some of the best Google TV apps - HBO Go, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video -- aren't available in Australia, so the Sony box's appeal is largely limited to Web browsing and Sony’s video and music services.
  • Pros: Chrome Web browser is very good, YouTube and Sony Entertainment Network apps are good
  • Cons: Some localisation issues, Google Play library is small and unappealing, No popular streaming video on demand services
